I don't think that is at all unfashionable!

Angular case, black dial, baton indices, could be a number of modern models!

Rather like it actually.

Each of us will face this question at least once in a year.

"Why do you have so many watches? You can only wear one at a time!"

Does that bottom dial alter the functions, timer, stopwatch, etc?
My eyesight isn't good enough to read it.

Having been saving for a U1 for some time, a bit of luck and a change of mind by both Downer and myself has brought this stunner my way.
